Swansea to land QPR's Fer on loan

HITC Sport understands Swansea are in talks to sign QPR midfielder.

Swansea City are in talks to sign Queens Park Rangers midfielder Leroy Fer after missing out on Reading's Danny Wiliams, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Swansea are trying to beat the transfer deadline to bring in a new midfielder and they are hoping to land Netherlands international Fer.

Swansea had expressed an interest in American midfielder Williams earlier on deadline day, but the move fell through leading Swansea to make a move for Fer.

Fer's future at QPR has been the subject of speculation for some time after he saw a move to Sunderland collapse during the summer transfer window.

The 26-year-old has made 19 appearances for QPR this season, scoring two goals, but it looks like Swansea are prepared to offer him a return to the Premier League.

QPR are willing to let Fer leave Loftus Road as Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink looks to trim the club's wage bill.

Fer is expected to join Swansea on loan until the end of the season as they look to bolster their midfield options to aid their battle to secure survival.
